Gramatik to play Lollapalooza After Party at Concord Music Hall in Chicago on Friday, August 1, 2014

Gramatik @ Concord Music Hall 8/1/2014Silver WrapperReact and C3 present an Official Lollapalooza After Show featuring Gramatik with special guests HeRobust, Russ Liquid and Gibbz on Friday, August 1, 2014 at Concord Music Hall in Chicago, IL.

Gramatik is currently celebrating the release of his most ambitious record to date, The Age Of Reason. After a year hiatus from a full-length release, the 15-track album is the delivery his cult and devoted fan base have been waiting for, and with BitTorrent by his side as a partner, it’s also the message he has been working to ingrain throughout his illustrious career. Not only a stunning and diverse journey through a range of unique sounds, The Age Of Reason also seeks to create a dialogue of “freeing music by making music free” amongst the business and public alike. To download, go to www.gramatik.net.

The Age Of Reason is an amalgamation of samples and live instrumentals so varied it’s like nothing heard ever before from himself, nor fellow producers alike. A master class through each individual track, Gramatik harmonizes elements of soul and blues with rock and hip-hop, by way of dubstep and electro and all the way back.

Gramatik will be joined by Atlanta’s hip-hop inspired bass music producer HeRobust as well as Lowtemp label mates Russ Liquid and Gibbz.

Doors @ 10:00 pm. Show @ 10:30 pm. Ages 18+.
